Amtrak trains from NYC to Albany back in service
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Amtrak has restored service between New York City and Albany, N.Y., after a fatal Metro-North derailment in the Bronx but says delays can be expected.
Four people were killed and 63 were injured in the crash on Metro-North's Hudson line in New York City.
Amtrak service had been halted because its trains run along the same rail line. Amtrak said its Empire line trains would be going through the affected area at reduced speeds, so delays are likely.
Amtrak says service on the heavily traveled Northeast Corridor line between Boston and Washington was unaffected.
Metro-North says service on its New Haven line in Connecticut also wasn't affected.
The Connecticut rail service runs on a line separate from the Hudson line. It extends from New Haven to Grand Central Terminal.
